Dr. Philip Ewell is Pacific’s Virtual Scholar in Residence for 2020-2021. We rebroadcast to Pacific’s communities his keynote address at the Conservatory’s 142 Convocation, given on September 5, 2020. The first of 6 virtual talks, Ewell's presentation was titled "Confronting Racism and Sexism in the Music Academy I, Racism Part I."

“Ewell provokes with a higher purpose: he is goading a classical culture that awards the vast majority of performances to a tight circle of superstars, shutting out female and nonwhite composers who, until the mid-twentieth century, had little chance of making a career.” – Alex Ross in the New Yorker, 9/14/20.

Pacific students, faculty, staff and alumni can obtain an access link to the re-broadcast by emailing Conservatory students, faculty and staff will be able to find the link in Canvas.
